23 Jan Restoration on a Shawnee Log home
The bottom or “sill” logs rotted on a Shawnee log home, this happens all to often, due to poor design of the homes, and to little roof overhang. With their “flat on flat” log construction, these home create the perfect place for water to wick into, and sit and begin the rotting process. Left unaddressed these problems can get ugly quick!
“Its alot like Jenga with a house, except you cant lose” is how one homeowner described it as he watched us work on his home. We have logs custom milled to match the house exactly, and then jack up the house, take out the old ones and put in the new ones.
